My oh my, what a wonderful day Santa and I had today in Calgary.
The first visit we had was to the Downtown Association at the Devonian Gardens. What a beautiful place! An indoor tropical paradise. Santa had a wonderful 3 hours having pictures taken with the children and parents and grandparents of the downtown area. I got to share my love of reading with the children and adults. We read “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at least 4 different times, and other great books that are geared especially for Calgary and Canada. What wonderful stories!! I had Mrs Claus pictures taken with many children and adults. It was so much fun!
I want to thank the elves from the Downtown Association for all their hard work and assistance. We had a wonderful experience as we were leaving the gardens. We got to have our picture taken with a beautiful young lady who had Downs Syndrome. She was truly a sweet girl who asked for a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus. What a way to end our visit!
The day ended with us visiting the Canadian Task Force#2 party. This is a group that help all around Alberta in extreme disasters, like floods, fires, snow storms, etc. The party was wonderful. We were treated to a ride into the party on a Ranger… a 4 wheel side by side that carries 6 people and cargo. The children LOVED Santa and Mrs. Claus and we had pictures taken with them, and handed out gifts. Then Santa made his rounds and got many Santa Selfies with the adults. So much fun! We then got a tour of the facility and learned so much about how this group of volunteers helps around our communities. It was overwhelming and we are so grateful to them. They don’t get the spotlight, but they deserve it. Thank you so much Can TF2 for all you do! We had a terrific time with your families.
Now it is time for Santa and Mrs. Claus to hit the hay… tomorrow is another busy day. We love sharing ourselves with all of you. We hope we bring some cheer to each of you and help to make wonderful memories for you. See you tomorrow!!!
We’re Lovin’ every minute of it!!!by
